What the United Way Logo Represents
|You’ve seen this symbol around – at health agencies, day care facilities, neighborhood centers, and of course, on United Way posters and publications. But do you know the symbol’s very simple, yet universal message?|
|A rainbow springs from the helping hand, representing the hope of improved lives and stronger communities made possible through United Way.|
|The person in the centre represents the giver of help – the donor, the volunteer, as well as the person who receives much needed services.|
|The helping hand at the bottom showing that everyone is supported and uplifted through United Way efforts, cradles the image in the centre, based on the universal symbol of humankind.|
|These three simple figures–the helping hand symbol – represent the sum total of United Way mission – to improve lives and build community by engaging individuals and mobilizing collective action.|
